I've gained about 12-13 pounds and I will be 21 weeks tomorrow. I had another ultrasound today (from my actual doctor's office this time) and the baby is still definitely a girl! She was measuring to the exact day of her due date, so her growth is right on track. She's approx 13 ounces now, so will hopefully hit a pound in the next week! I feel her all of the time now, but my hubby hasn't been able to feel her yet so we're just hoping her kicks continue to get stronger so daddy can feel his little girl too!
My little guy kicks all day I love it, but hubby has yet to feel it! Ive only felt it a couple times from the outside so hopefully he will get a little stronger in the next few weeks! I dont know how ive only gained 1 lb so far, worried me a little bit but she said hes growing right on track...I will probably gain my weight all at once and get even more stretch marks! lol oh well!
While the girls are with me during my baby shower.... My hisband is throwing a diaper keg party- which his friends have to bring diapers to drink from his keg lol- so hopefully we get lots of diapers he is pretty excited about it.
Melydu- congrats on confirmed boy!!!!!
So yesterday- i picked up my free breastpump here is the US maternity leave sucks but at least if u have insurance u get a breast pump hahha- i wasnt sure between the Ameda or Medela ( at work we switched from the medela to the ameda because the ameda is a closed system) iv done alot of research and i went with the Ameda- i hear its only real downfall is its a lil louder, but high points are like i said its a closed system so it help preventing contamination. I hear the sucition is comparable but the medela has an automatic suction mode where the Ameda you can control it yourself to what works for you. So we will see how it works its getting Real!!!!! Im also feeling Canon move everyday- ( lol we think we are namin him Canon- but i call him it all the time so i guess we really are lol- it has really helped me bond ) EEK!!!- im gonna be a mommy!!!!! Im going through the phase where im gettig excited to meet him but also doubting my ability once he is here... What if icant do it, if im too tired? Will i fail at breastfeeding? Will DH n i grow farther apart because it will be all about baby n we will be exhausted? Can we really afford me not working for a while? Will the birth go ok? Ugh- im gonna go eat something hahahhah
Hahaha Hope- totally normal!! It will be really exciting at first and trust me you and Dh will get in little bicker moments because it is stressful having a new baby, but things do get better as you settle into a routine, you will love every single moment of it!!! How do you get a free breast punp? I have insurance! lol
Here is a pic from our diaper party, everything went really well. We did have a keg too, it was a little hard to watch everyone drink and drink and drink and have so much fun lol but I know its SO worth it!
Wow you got a real good start on diapers!!!! Thats awesome
Ftmommy- do u live in the US... If so your doctor writes u a perscription for one and its different with each state n insurance... Like some u have to wait till after the baby comes, some u need to wait toll the third trimester.... Mine i just needed a perscription. Then there was a distributer in my state i had to go to, but alot of my friends then just went to pick it up at target or babys r us.... Ask ur doc about it
